Do you know what is the difference between "i.e." and "e.g." ? Both of them are abbreviations of Latin phrases. "E.g." means "exempli gratia" which means "for example" while "i.e." means "id est", which means "that is".
Hence, you would use "e.g." when you are citing a few examples.
For e.g. :
I am scared of insects, e.g. cockroaches, dragonflies and mosquitoes.
As for "i.e.", you use this when you want to clarify a statement.
For e.g. :
I love to wear my favorite dress, i.e., the red dress with white ruffles.
Strictly speaking, when you use "e.g." in a sentence, you need not add "for" to write "for e.g.". Technically, that will read "for for example".
